Safety

NOTE
lnspection

&. DANGER

This instrument is designed to comply with IEC 61010


Safety Standards, and has been thoroughly tested for safety
prior to shipment. However, mishandling during use could
result in injury or death, as well as damage to the
instrument. Be certain that you understand the instructions
and precautions in the manual before use. We disclaim any
responsibility for accidents or injuries not resulting directly
from instrument defects.

Measurement categories

lndicates advisory items related to performance ar


correct ooeration of the instrument.

This instrument complies with CAT 111 safety requirements.


To ensure safe operation of measurement instruments, IEC
61010 establishes safety standards for various electrical
environments, categorized as CAT 111 to CAT IV, and called
measurement categories..
CAT 11: Primary electrical circuits in equipment connected to
an AC electrical outlet by a power cord (portable tools,
household appliances, etc.
CAT 11 covers directly measuring electrical outlet
receptacles.
CAT 111: Primary electrical circuits of heavy equipment (fixed
installations) connected directly to the distribution
panel, and feeders from the distribution panel to
outlets.
CAT IV: The circuit from the service drop to the service
entrance, and to the power meter and primary
overcurrent protection device (distribution panel).
Using a measurement instrument in an environment designated
with a higher-numbered category than that for which the
instrument is rated could result in a severe accident, and must
be carefully avoided.

When you receive the instrument, inspect it carefully to ensure that no


damage occurred during shipping. lf damage is evident, or if it fails to
operate according to the specifications, contact your dealer or Hioki
representative.

Precautions

&. DANGER
Observe the following precautions to avoid electric shock.
Always verify the appropriate setting of the range selector
switch before connecting the test leads. Disconnect the
test leads from the measurement object before switching
the range selector switch.
Before taking a measurement, check the position of the
range switch. Do not measure voltage outside the set
voltage range or voltage at levels in excess of the
measurement limit. Doing so may damage the instrument
or cause an accident resulting in injury or death.
Do not input voltage to the current measurement,
resistance measurement, and battery test ranges. Doing
so may damage the instrument or cause an accident
resulting in injury or death.
NOTE: The built-in fuse prevents a short-circuit in a power
line resulting from a malfunction or misuse of the
instrument. However, this built-in fuse protection is
effective for up to 250 VAC commercial power
input.
lf the end of a test lead short-drcuits lines with a voltage
between them, this is very dangerous and can lead to a serious
accident. Exercise great care when measuring voltage.

,&. WARNING
To preven! electric shock, do not allow the instrument to
become wet and do not use the instrument when your
hands are wet.

,&. CAUTION
lf the protective functions of the instrument are damaged,
either remove the instrument from service or post wamings
to preven! others from using the instrument inadvertently.
Note that the instrument may be damaged if voltage or
curren! in excess of the measurement range is input.
Do not store or use the instrument where it will be exposed
to direct sunlight, high temperatures, high humidity, or
condensation. lf exposed to such conditions, the instrument
may be damaged, the insulation may deteriorate, and the
instrument may no longer satisfy its specifications.
After use, always turn OFF the power.

1. Set the range switch to the ACV or DCV range proper for the voltage
to be measured.
NOTE: lf the voltage value is unclear, initially set the range switch to the
600 V range, and after obtaining a reading in this range, change
to the range proper far the voltage value.
2. Connect the black test lead to the - terminal, and the red one to the +
terminal.
3. Connect the test leads to the circuit to be measured in parallel, then
read the results on the AC/DC scale. When the DCV is selected, if
connecting the red test lead to the positive side, and the black one to
the negative side, then the pointer deflects normally.
NOTE: When changing the range, disconnect the test leads from the
object to be measured.

NOTE

lf the meter pointer is not positioned in the O scale value, use the zero
adjuster to adjust it correctly.
lf the fuse is blown, or the test leads are damaged, any range does
not operate. To check the test leads wiring and fuse blowing, refer to
"3. Fuse and Test Leads Continuity Check" in Battery and Fuse
Replacement.
lf the meter cover becomes electrostatically charged, values may
display incorrectly because of attractive forces on the needle. In this
case, apply anti-static treatment to inhibit electrostatic charge buildup.
The efficacy of such electrostatic treatments dissipates over time, so
the treatment may need to be reapplied periodically.

1 Measurement Procedure
Pre-Operation lnspection

Current Measurement (DCmA, 60 ADC)

To avoid the possibility of electric shock or incorrect measurement,


check the following items befare using the instrument.

.&. WARNING
Use only the supplied Model L9207-30 TEST LEAD.
Before using the instrument, make sure that the insulation
on the test leads is undamaged and that the white or red
portion (insulation layer) inside the cable is not exposed.
Using the instrument in such conditions could cause an
electric shock, so contact your dealer or Hioki
representative for replacements.
(Model L9207-30 TEST LEAD)
For voltage measurement, short the test leads and check that O V is
indicated.
For resistance measurement, short the test leads and adjust the
reading to zero using the zero ohm adjuster (O Q ADJ knob).
Measure a test item with a known value (battery, AC supply, resistor,
etc.) to check that the instrument is functioning correctly.

Voltage Measurement (AC, DCV)

,&. DANGER

.._I-----=====__JI
The maximum input voltage is 600 V DC/AC. Attempting to
measure voltage in excess of the maximum input could
destroy the instrument and result in personal injury or death.

.&. CAUTION

Removable sleeves are attached to the metal pins at the


ends of the test leads.
To preven! a short circuit accident, be sure to use the test
leads with the sleeves attached when performing
measurements in the CAT 111 measurement category.
Remove the sleeves from the test leads when performing
measurements in the CAT II measurement category.
For details on measurement categories, see "Measurement
categories" in the instruction manual.
When performing measurements with the sleeves attached,
be careful to avoid damaging the sleeves. lf the sleeves are
inadvertently removed during measurement, be especially
careful in handling the test leads to avoid electric shock.

.&. DANGER
Do not apply a voltage while a curren! range is selected.
Applying a voltage may result in darnage to the instrument,
or a serious accident.

Lh WARNING

To avoid electrical shock, do not use the instrument to


measure curren! in circuits of 250 V or greater. The
curren! function overload protection trips at 250 Vrrns.
To preven! electrical accidents, turn the power off before
connecting the test leads and then take rneasurements.
1. Set the range switch to the DCmA or 60 A range.

NOTE: lf the curren! value is unclear, initially set the range switch to the

300 mA DC range, and after obtaining a reading in this range,


change to the range proper far the curren! value.
2. Connect the black test lead to the - terminal, and the red one to the +
terminal.
3. Connect the instrument to the electrical line to be measured in series
(to the cut off line). Connect it so that curren! flows from the red test
lead to the black one. (lf connecting it reversely, the pointer deflects
in the reverse direction.)

NOTE: When changing the range, disconnect the test leads from the

object to be measured.
4. Read the result on the AC/DC scale.

Do not apply a over-voltage while a BATT 1.5 V range is


selected. Applying a over-voltage may result in damage to
the instrument, or a serious accident.

---~I -------:;----:-----L':-. WARNING

Turn off the power and discharge the capacitors before


measuring resistance in a circu!.

1. Set the range switch to the proper n range.


Accurate measurement can be made by selecting a range where the
reading will be about the center of the range.
2. Connect the black test lead to the - terminal, and the red one to the +
terminal.
3. Short the test leads, and use the zero ohm adjuster (O QAOJ knob) to
adjust the pointer to the O n scale.
NOTE: lf the pointer cannot be adjusted to the O n scale, replace the
battery.
4. Connect the test leads to the circuit to be measured, and read the
value from the scale.
NOTE: When changing the range, disconnect the test leads from the
object to be measured.
For resistance measurement, the indication may be unstable if
the ends of the test leads are dirty, and the contact is poor. lf
the indication is unstable, increase the contact pressure, or
clean the ends of the test leads by wiping with alcohol or similar
solvent.
5. In order to obtain the true value, it is necessary to multiply the reading
shown by the factor for the range in use.
